Will Chris Evans return as Captain America? Actor says ‘I’d be very cautious’


Fans have been clamoring for Chris Evans’ return since the release of ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ when it was revealed that he is hanging up the shield and the character of Steve Rogers, or the former Captain America. Never mind that a new Captain has arrived in the form of Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie).

Cap, the original one, went back in time at the end of ‘Endgame’ to return Thor’s older version of Mjolnir to its proper place. He also went on to live that life and the dance he had promised Peggy Carter (Haley Atwell). And he had grown old because he had lived his entire life.

But now the MCU has the multiverse, and the writers and directors have multiple, potentially different versions of Cap (apart from Sam Wilson) to use.

But Evans does not think it likely that he will come back. While speaking at the D23 Inside Disney Podcast, he responded to a question, “No, I don’t think so. I mean it was a really unbelievable ride and the character’s just so dear to me and I’m just so precious with it.”

“To return to the role, I mean, the truth is, the role isn’t even mine anymore,” he added. Anthony Mackie plays the part. So, even if there was a different incarnation, not as Captain America, but as Steve Rogers, that would feel… I’d be very cautious, simply because I enjoy that part of my life professionally and personally. I admire what those films accomplished, and the prospect of revisiting them and potentially adding to their legacy would be disappointing if it didn’t work out. So it would necessitate a near-perfect recipe, which may or may not be in the cards.”

Mackie became Captain America in the TV show ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’. He will reprise the role in Captain America 4
